Melbourne: The Prince Public Bar is open again

Late nights, Sunday mornings, bayside debauchery and live music shenanigans are back at the gateway to the southeast: The Prince Public Bar.

St Kilda’s legendary local Prince Public Bar is calling first drinks again with the legendary pad flaunting a new look since closing in April to undergo a major overhaul.

Remodelled by IF Architecture’s Iva Foschia, a long-time collaborator of the corner locale, the new design pays homage to its Art Deco heritage reimagined through a modern lens.

The entire ground floor has been opened up to create light, roomy spaces, with an internal staircase allowing a more free-flowing connection to the hotel lobby and Prince Dining Room.

At the heart of the venue is a large oval island bar, reinstated to its original orientation and grandeur.

With breakfast-to-lunch at the hands of Chef Dan Cooper’s approachable, seasonal menu, there’s no reason to not check him out at the Prince website.
